EAEA Country Reports 2019 published

For the sixth year in a row EAEA presents its country reports – a civil society view of adult education in Europe. These country reports are based on surveys filled in by our members from 30 different European countries, helping to give a voice to civil society organisations and grass roots movements in adult education on a European stage.

This is the last edition that will take this format, as, from now on, we will be presenting the country reports on a new database – making it even easier to compare situations year by year, and country by country, as well as providing an opportunity for researching policy relating to specific areas – ‘Upskilling Pathways’ for example.

The country reports provide a means for:

  • Informing colleagues and adult education stakeholders across Europe with developments and recommendations for your country
  • Comparison between your situation and that of other countries or regions in Europe over the past six years
  • Provide inspiration on innovative practices for colleagues and policy makers

The country specific information on adult education policy could act as a tool for influencing the European Semester, the cycle of yearly economic and structural policy coordination from the European Commission.

More inclusive and comprehensive view on ageing is needed

EAEA welcomes the European Commission’s interest in the demographic change and its effect on Europe. EAEA advocates for a resourceful utilisation of adult education and learning to support the recovery from the pandemic. However, a more inclusive and comprehensive view on ageing and the needs and the potential of the elderly people is needed.
